Please join me in congratulating all those who worked so long, hard
and diligently to develop and document the 1484.12.3 LOM XML Schema
Definition Language Binding. As per the Email below which we just
received from IEEE REVCOM, this is officially now the latest full IEEE
accredited standard from LTSC!!!

We should all feel immensely proud of what we have helped accomplish
with not only these accredited standards, but what they are enabling
to happen in the learning world overall. Of course we should also be
humbled by what lies ahead but equally emboldened by what we have
learned along the way and by what we can expect to achieve in the

More details and discussion on next steps for LOM and LTSC will be
provided next week at the LTSC meeting in Alexandria, Virginia so hope
that you will be able to attend or tune in.
